  • Mixed methods, mixed tools. The use of computer software for integrated
           qualitative and quantitative analysis
    • We report on how two different software programs (Camtasia and EdEt) were used in the process of data conversion from qualitative to quantitative format. This process, known as quantitative translation of data, can be considered a specific kind of mixed methods analysis. We show the methodological and technical limits of the programs and the possibilities they offer for quantitative translation. We reflect on the role these software packages played in the different stages of data collection and data analysis of the studies described. Finally, we delve into the methodological and epistemological criticisms of the use of software for qualitative data analysis, concluding that they are meaningful warnings to avoid a misuse of software but do not apply when researchers adopt an interpretive approach in which they actively participate in the development and testing of categories.2017-01-21T17:12:58Z

  • Principal Components and clustering on lexical distances from standard
           Basque to local varieties
    • It is common in Dialectology the use of linguistic distances aiming to the delimitation of dialects. Different statistical techniques have been applied in modern dialectology to draw dialectal boundaries. So far little work has been published about the determinants of language variation. In this contribution, we propose a two step method (combining Principal Components and Cluster Analysis) in order to get a dialectal classification of localities using distances from standard Basque to a number of local varieties of the Basque language. In addition, we determine, on the one hand, which lexical features have caused the greatest variation in the different dialect areas and, on the other hand, which localities are the most representative ones in each dialect area.2016-11-01T04:02:49Z

  • A methodology for longitudinal research on EFL written production:
           Capturing writing multidimensionality by combining qualitative and
           quantitative procedures
    • This article critically examines the most challenging aspects of the methodology used in a broader research endeavour aimed at measuring the longitudinal impact of Content Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) on the compositions in English as a Foreign Language (EFL) produced by secondary education learners. A pretest/posttest design with repeated measures was used, which appears to be the only way to control for differences in task complexity (Larsen-Freeman 2006) despite claims of carry-over effects (Abbuhl et al. 2014). The major methodological concern was to describe writing in all its complexity and multidimensionality (Alanen et al. 2010). The decisions regarding the communicative written tasks administered, the building of the corpus, and especially the mixed methods for evaluating the written production obtained were made accordingly. All things considered, a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods to measure and characterize EFL writing is advocated in order to capture all its richness.2016-12-07T17:30:07Z

  • Reporting practices of rater reliability in interpreting research: A
           mixed-methods review of 14 journals (2004–2014)
    • The issue addressed in this study is the reporting practices of rater reliability in interpreting research (IR), given that the use of raters as a method of measurement is a commonplace in IR, and that little is known about to what extent and how rater reliability estimates (RREs) have been reported. Drawing upon 447 articles from 14 translation and interpreting journals (2004--2014), this mixed-methods study attempts to gain quantitative and qualitative insights into the reporting practices. Data analysis reveals that: 1) almost 90% of the articles that needed to report RREs failed to do so; 2) potential problems emerged from those articles that reported RREs: lack of distinction between rater consensus and consistency, underreporting, misinterpretation and misuse of RREs, and lack of justification for the use of rater-generated measurements for subsequent data analysis. These findings highlight an urgent need for increased author awareness of reporting appropriate RREs in IR.2016-12-07T17:28:29Z

  • Selection and validation of a measurement instrument for readability
           calculations in patient information leaflets for oncological patients in
           Spain
    • This article presents some findings which deal with text readability, obtained in a research project sponsored by the Spanish Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad . The main objective of the project was to improve the quality of written texts used to convey information to oncological patients in hospitals in Spain. Among other measurement instruments, it was proposed to use some readability index which allowed to detect the quality of the original texts considered (written in Spanish), and which additionally enabled the evaluation of the improvement in readability achieved as a consequence of the research. Literature review on readability indices, for the case of Spanish language, indicated three possible candidates. Statistical analysis guided the selection and validation processes carried out for the indices in the case of patient information leaflets addressed to oncological patients in two Spanish hospitals2016-10-14T17:00:33Z

  • Machine translation implementation among language service providers in
           Spain: A mixed methods study
    • This article presents a mixed methods study on the implementation of machine translation (MT) and post-editing (PE) among Spanish language service providers and the methodology used. In the first phase, questionnaires were used to collect quantitative data about each business’s profile and the proportion of businesses using MT and PE. In the next phase, a focus group session was used to collect qualitative data to complement the quantitative results and understand businesses’ motivations and the procedures followed to adopt (or not adopt) an MT system. The results of the two phases are presented separately and then integrated in the discussion. The quantitative results show that 47.3% of Spanish language service providers use MT and that 45.5% of these use MT in only 10% of their total projects. The qualitative results reveal that the decision to implement an MT system depends on multiple factors: the business’s financial capacity, technological capacity and the knowledge and attitude of the business’s human resources.2016-10-14T17:07:58Z
